This is a cake made to look like a Rainbow Trout with a Delektable Double Streamer in its mouth. I made it for Dan Delekta's Birthday Celebration this past weekend in the Madison Valley at the Beartooth Flyfishing Lodge. ( I wish it was a better photo )  I don't know if you remember, but I wrote a post about him and his wife "chief boat rower' Nancy Delekta a few months ago.  It was a hit, a great party and it seems I'll be making a few more here very soon.


This coming up weekend is the Fly Fishing Festival in Ennis with the Madison River Foundation.  If you want to know more about the event visit


Make it a great week.
